landed inside turkey, fired by syrian government forces, killing, according to the u.n. secretary-general, by the way, killing not five but at least six turkish civilians including a young boy. the turks, we understand, have spended with artillery fire toward syrian positions. this, obviously, is potentially the beginning of a nightmare scenario talked about by secretary general of the u.n. that could turn from a civil war into a regional conflict engulfing the whole of the middle east. >>shepard: thank issue jonathan. whoever wins the presidential election, a last you will be upset, budget but has a solution if your candidate doesn't win. leave the country. the country will pick up the tab. details are next. >>shepard: you have heard it or said it. if my candidate doesn't win this election i'll going to leave the country. well, there is an airline that will help you leave for free. jetblue announced election protection promotion. election protection. people can sign up online to win one of 1,000 free trips out of the united states. the catch is, you can only win if the candidate
